While going to grad school for painting in San Francisco from 1966-1968, I worked for a printing company in North Beach. I pasted up record albums for Chris Strachwich of Berkeley who was the guy behind Arhoolie records. I worked on Mance Lipscomb, Bukka White, Lightning Hopkins, Mississippi Fred McDowell, Clifton Chenier, etc. records and met some of them. I believe that the Arhoolie catalog is now in the Smithsonian collection. Mance got that Texas thumb really working on the bass! In Dead Ernest

I might have liked that radio station, Bob.   Or the visit to his home town.  I only learned about his music after his death.

That's cool.  I enjoyed visiting Blues Alley in Navasota his hometown before they closed.    I  first heard him on the radio when I  was about seven.  It was KPRS a small station in Kansas City that only played the blues.
